I was planning on buying it for the online but if people barely play I don't want to waste my money on it.
So do people still play this game online, and if so about how many?
Hey Nick, not really. It's been phased out. It kind of overstayed it's welcome especially when it had a lot of core problems and the like. It was one of those fad things. It was an enjoyable game but now the die hards play it on a regular basis. So if you don't mind playing with the same number of hardcore people over and over again, be my guest and purchase.
I've done the math and discovered I was never part of the equation.
